SCCF is one of the nation’s oldest and most active federations of community associations. It was founded in 1946 to facilitate resettlement of Seattle’s Japanese residents who had returned from wartime internment to find their homes and businesses gone; and to help black veterans facing their own inequities. Yearly dues for member groups are $50, and new groups are always welcome. Individual donations are also welcome, and go very far, as SCCF is all-volunteer. Please mail your check to SCCF, 2370 Yale Avenue East, Seattle, WA 98102-3310. For questions, contact treasurer Chris Leman, (206) 322-5463, email@example.com.
